As we become older, it can be easier to feel fearful about the changes that may come to us. We may feel that the latest technology is leaving us behind. Or we may have more health concerns. Solomon wrote “Do not say why were the former days better than these. For you do not inquire wisely concerning this.” Never forget that God has promised to be with us all our lives. God spoke to Jacob when he was more than 100 years old, saying, “Do not fear to go down to Egypt.” This was a major move for him, but he obeyed God; he knew that God would be with him.
In Malachi 3:6 we are told “For I am the Lord, I do not change.” In a changing world it is great to know that God doesn’t change. At times change can be very difficult but we are told to fear not. We can trust God to take care of us in all the experiences and changes of life.
This reminds me of the words of the chorus from the song, Because He Lives by Bill Gaither.
Because He lives, I can face tomorrowBecause he lives, all fear is goneBecause I know He holds the futureAnd life is worth the living, just because He lives.
